In the heart of the Trelissick estate, yet slightly removed and sharing a private enclosed garden with the The Water Tower, Engine House provides comfortable accommodation in a wonderful setting. Built in the same era and with the same workmanship and attention to detail as the Water Tower, it used to house the generator for pumping water from the tower to the main house.
Explore the Fal Estuary and beyond without impacting on the delicate natural environment of this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Park up the car and do all your travelling by river. Use the hop-on hop-off ferries to visit Falmouth, Truro and all points between.
